    I always do three directions… You are all happy, SMILE ! (slightly agressive, makes people laugh). I want you all to look bored. Finally, I want you all to look like you have just won the lottery…while they all start smiling or jumping, I shout, "but your dog just died" people fall about laughing and you get great natural pictures.

    1:30 As much as it's nice to see people giving people tips on how to get better at photography, I think you should learn how to properly hold a camera first.
